Food Bank President Mike Wakelin, showing off turkeys donated by the Grand Forks division of Rockwool. Rockwool recently supplied us with 22 turkeys that we were able to distribute to clients.
We had the pleasure of touring Save On Foods staff around the Food Bank today. Save On is a major contributor to our Food Bank. Thanks to them, we are able to provide our clients meat, dairy, deli products, produce, bread and baked goods in addition to grocery items. What amazing support. Thank you Save On!
A huge thanks to Grand Forks Rotary for their recent donation of $2000 cash to the Food Bank. Rotary also donated $2300 in Boundary Bucks to us. These are gift cards, in $5 and $20 amounts, that can be used at many businesses in Grand Forks, Greenwood and Midway. We’ll be handing them out to our clients in February.
Soup’s on! We’ll be serving a hot lunch on Tuesdays, for the next few months. Join us for lunch, Tuesday 11 am – 2 pm You’re welcome to come for lunch, even if you aren’t collecting food that day.
We are so grateful for all the donations we receive from individuals and organizations within our community. Your help makes it possible for us to help those who need it.

CIBC, Perley School, Hutton School, Grand Forks and District Recreation Centre, Roxul, Interfor, BC Ambulance, Body Edge Fitness, the Credit Union, LeeAnne Gailey Hairstudio as well as several other groups and many individuals generously donated cash or food to the Food Bank this holiday season.
